-Thoren? to be & sharp struggle between

gion-a trado likely to add largely to tho wealth
of the city that succeeds in controlling it.
-The spirit photographers aro undergoing
a criminal prosecution in New York. It will
be remembered that they pretended to furnish,
the picture of a deceased friend, whose shad?
owy resemblance invariably appeared at the
shoal".. r of the sitter, but Vas produced by or?
dinary scientific means. They declined to
answer to thc indictment.
? -Don Piatt bas suddenly become a trifle
acidulated in his re narks upon Grant. . Per?
haps that " little business - which occupied just
ten minutes" did'nt turn out happily. At any
rate, this is a bit of his recent sarcasm : "The
bold, direct way in which Grant incited to bis
Cabinet the men who had mado him handsome
presents, and lien put all his relatives in of?
fice, took fro ul the transaction any suspicion
of a wrong intent. It was onjy laughable."
-Commander F. S. Fillebrown, of tho
United States steamer Narragansett, reports
under date of the 7th, instant, from Havana,
th? particulars of tw.i passengers, Cubans,
having been taken out of the American schoon?
er Lizzie Major, ton leagues from the coast of
-Qafca haJ?uJAa??if^ frifni?? Fm-naudo Oat.nl i
ca, ana imprisoned. The two persons were
named D. Santiago A. Anible and Don Ramon
Y. Raivas. It seems that they took passage
in the Lizzie Major at ^avana for New Orleans.
The schooner touched t Remedios, took in
a cargo, and sailed on the 26th of March fer
her destination. She was boarded the same
day by the Spanish frigate, as above stated.
The prisoners were carried back to Remedios
and incarcerated. One of them is a lad of
about ten years of age. They were visited in
prison by Mr. Stone, United States Consular
agent at that point, who made a demand on
the Commandant of the Province for their re?
lease; who did not feel authorized to release
thora, without orders from his superiors. The
?ase having been made known to Mr. Hall,
United States Consul General at Havana, he
bas brought it to the attention of the Captain
General of Cuba, who has ordered a thorough
investigation to be made, .'ho ground of the
arrest is said to be that the names of the pas?
sengers were not on the manifest of the
' -The foreign Dominations as a whole are
Haid to be very UQsatisfactory to the 8enate,
although party fealty will secure their confir?
mation. Mr. Jay's assignment to Vienna is
regarded as a first-rate second-rate sort of com?
pliment, and his friends are the reverse ot well
pleased, except as to the small thankfulness
with which commensurate favors are received.
.Mr. Jay bas amassed a large fortune, and has
acquired the reputation of a good deal of cul?
ture. Moreover, he directly r< presents a deal
of subscription and the whole of the Loyal
League. His claims were rated high, and they
. are felt not to have been duly rewarded. The
aupersedure of Henry Sanford at Brussels by
the unknown J. Bussell Jones, of Illinois, made
great consternation in tho Senate. "Who is
-Jones?" took the place of the conundrum,
.*rWho.is Borie?" and in every instance it was
given np. There is a likelihood of Pile de
C&ntag to go to Venezuela. Clay, to Liberia,
and Bassett, to Hay ti, are two negroes, one of
Louisiana and the color of au old saddle; the
other of Philadelphia and a genuine black.
They are said to be men of ability and wealth.
The nomination of ex-Senator John S. Z. Car?
lisle, of West Virginia, to be minister-resident
at Stockholm, is to Radicals a decided surprise,
to say thc least. He is regarded as a cautious
conservative, and bis party status can be un?
derstood from tho fact that bo was a fair Demo?
crat while senator from that State. Governor
Cnrtin's going to St. Petersburg is commented
upon merely as a proximate initiation of his?
-The Philadelphia press gives the following
account of the experiments on the body of
Gerald Eaton, who was hanged last week for
morder: Arrangements were made by the
friends of the condemned to have an effort
made to resuscitate tho body. Accordingly, a
committee appointed for the purpose were in
waiting at the prison at the time of the execu?
tion, and the body, wrapped in blankets, was
brought to the university. The drop was four
feet; tbe cord around bis neck was a small one.
He hang by his neck thirty min?tes, and there
-were sis,..s ot life only four minutes after the
drop. Ten minutes after being cut down, he
was placed upon the table in the amphitheatre,
the time elapsing from the execution being
forty-four minutes. Six ounces of whiskey
were injected into tho bowels, and one gallon
of pore oxygen gas was forced into the lungs,
- and a powerful galvanic buttery applied to tho
medalla oblongata and the pit ct the stomach.
At the same time tho tongue was withdrawn
from the month, and the body turned from side
io side, after the method of Marshall Hall, for
.artificial respiration. In four or five minutes a
marked change occurred in the countenance;
the chest gradually expanded, the eyes opened,
one arm was drawn np, and, by meant of a
stethoscope, contractions and dilatations of tl
heart wero distinctly heard. So evident wc:
thc sizos of lifo (hat his friends exulted ov
thc fact that ho really lived. Another gallon
oxygon was introduced into thc lungs, and tl
battery was charged so that the cur entpass?
thc entire length of the spine, and the arti
dal respiration continued. For a few momen
thv signs of life increased, but in a short tin
disappeared. Nitrous oxido gas was inject?
into ihe lungs by an artificial opening into tl
trachea, made by Professor Duffee, but sll
no purpeso, and at the expiration of one hoi
and twenty-five minutes tbe experiment cease
and tbe body was banded over to the friend
SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 17, 1869.
Tbe Ever Faithful Isle.
The Cuban insurrectionists have, aocon
inr; to the New York Tribune, become ma
tere of at least three-fifths of the area
the Island of Cuba, and from the same rel
able source we learn that the control of tl
Spaniards over the remainder is in jeej
ardy. The insurrectionists have an orgai
ized semi-military government, supporte
by an army of forty thousand men in tl
field, which could easily be doubled in nun
bers if arms and equipments could be hat
This sounds well, and is echoed and ri
echoed by the metropolitan and provincii
press. It is a fine thing surely to sympathi;
with a nation struggling to be free. There
a flattering unction in the reflection that eac
public meeting and each leading article ?
a blow on the side of liberty. And in vie
of the historic fact that the American Rac
ical is an ingenuous and disinterested mo:
tal, who has never oppressed others or tie
thongs to the whip of military tyranny,
is pleasant to hear these cries of sympath
with Coba and with Crete, these appeals t
the government to recognize the Cuba
rebels, all these hints that the officers c
the United States should wink at the expe
anions which are being fitted oat to ai>
struggling Coba. It is true that Cuba is 1
province of Spain, and that, according t
international law, the United States havi
not one tithe of the right to recognize thi
Cubans as belligerents that England ant
France had to recognize the Confedera!*
Slates. But who cares now for principle
Who cares for the right or the wrong of i
when the question is to unshackle the hu
man race, and at one fell swoop establisl
unqualified negro equality ?
This is the secret of the friendliness 0
the Northern Radicals to the Cuban insur
rectionists. The Democratic presses giv<
the insurrection their support because the]
know that the Spaniards ire treating theil
prisoners, and those who are euspeoted 0
giving countenance to the rebellion, with t
bloody brutality which no Valley raider 01
spoon peculator could surpas?; and also
perhaps, because they are willing that th<
Gem of the Antilles should fall into the laj
of the Union, so that the Radicals may have s
new and distant field in whioh to practice thc
arts of profitable reconstruction. But thc
anchor whioh prevents the Radical ship
from breaking away from its moorings ie
what the Tribune calls the "moral value"
of the unmistakable position whioh thc
uuoans nota in taking as their purpose "thc
"policy of emancipation and fall enfran?
chisement of all their oit ?zens. "
? We of the South had thought that a Car?
olina cotton field was an earthly paradise
when oompared with a Coban sugar plan?
tation, and we have, so far, no great
faith in the moral value of emancipation
coupled with the right to vote. The freed?
men of the South have shown no capacity
for self-government, and have fallen a prey
to the oily tongues and winning ways of the
political negro traders. Southern freed?
men were, at the time of their emancipa?
tion, more intelligent and more capable of
improvement than are the Cuban negroes,
and yet the Southern freedmen are very far
from being able to take good care of them?
selves/ or to make just laws for the benefit
of themselves and others.
It seems, however, that there ia a virtue
in ignorance. Because he was illiterate
and dull, the Southern negro reoeived the
highest privileges whioh a man may enjoy.
There was to be security for himself in his
very want of knowledge, and security for
others in his very stupidity. There has
been some little jarring of the machinery,
some sign that a fool who possesses power
may soon become a knave. But the Radi?
cal phrty is a party of great moral ideas,
and th9 more besotted and barbarous the
Coban negroes may be, the more will Radi?
calism applaud the revolution whioh dares
to Bet them free.
We have of course no fondness for Spain;
but on the other hand we cannot but feel
that Cuba might be more prosperous under
the yoke of Spain than under the role of
half a million negroes enjoying the right
to hold office and the right to vote. What
we desire is the freedom of Cuba, not its
subjection to the role of the. negro; and
we fear that the Cubans, in bidding high
for Radical sympathy, forget what is nec?
essary for their own safety, and embrace
on unnatural doctrine whioh, if persevered
in, will debase them and their people, and
lead to the speady ruin of thc "Ever Blessed
The South Carolina Central Railroad.
We print, this morning, the proceedings
of a public meeting, held in Manning, on
Monday last, to take into consideration the
building of the railroad from Gourdin's to
Sumter, of whioh we have spoken more
than once before.
The meeting seem to have taken a practi?
cal view of the business before them, and
we pres?me that by the time of the adjourn
ed meeting, to be held next month, the
oommittee will have made substantial pro?
gress in obtaining subscription! to the cap?
ital of the road. They who cannot sub ?
scribe money can subscribe land. They
who cannot give either money or land eau
lake contracts for grading, ditching, or
famishing sills and ties, payment to be
made in sto~k.
We believe that the road will be of great
benefit to Chaxleston, aB well as to the dis?
tricts through which it passes and to the
Northeastern Railroad. We hope, there?
fore, that it will be encouraged on all sides
and receive a hearty and Liberal support.
PREHISTORIC NATIONS; or Inquiries Concerning
some ot' tho Great Peoples and Civilizations
of Antiquity, and their Probable Relations
to a still Older Civilization of the Ethiopians
or Cushites of Arabia. By uno. D. Baldwin,
A. AI. New York : Harper & Brothers. Charles
tou : Holmes' Book House.
Mr. Baldwin has undertaken a difficult task
the construction of a history from the legends,
idolatries and monuments of the primeval
nitione. In that vast cloud-land, where tho
morning light of civilization arose and whence
its magical rays have not yet wholly disap?
peared, ho undertakes to distinguish reality
from romance. He believes that in the Cush?
ites be has discovered tho first world explorers,
or at least tho first world conquerors-the art?
ists of the antique rock sculptures and the
cyclopean walls, the priests from whom Egypt
derived its inspiration, tho circumnavigators
of Africa, tho metal workers of Spain and
Britain, the teachers of the Ase of Bronze,
whoso traditions and even whoso arts still
linger in the Indi.a Archipelago, in Arabia, in
the heart of Africa, and among tho lonely
valleys of Pern. The author's confideace in
his theory is boundless, and his industry in
collecting corroborative facts is equal to his
enthusiasm. The result is a volume oracular,
garrulous, entertaining-intolerant of Ushor
and orthodoxy, deferential to Renan, and ro?
mantic aud scientific incredulity. Unfortu?
nately, the facts in the volume are selected,
not sifted. Any authority bas value which
supports the theory of the book; thus Diodo
rus Siculus is allowed to testify to events
which occurred before the bounding of Baby?
lon. Mr. Baldwin has endeavored to repro?
duce the primordial past after a method which
casts contempt upon the well established prin?
ciples of historical criticism. He has not trav?
ersed much ground; he has collected many cu?
rious antiques; bathe mu3t strike deeper if j
he would bring to fight the buried secret of

THIS ASSOCIATION WAS ORGANIZED ON THE

ready secured an annual revenue from premiums on
existing policies of nearly $500,000 (Five Hun
dred Thousand Dollars). Its new business for the
month of December was $72,393 36, insuring the
amount of $1,167,000. Its new business for the
month of January was $86,021 71, insuring tb*
amount of $1,649,00?.
One month's business being greater than that done
by the largest and wealthiest Life Insurance Compa?
nies In ihr United States during the entire first
year o?. their existence.
The Association was first started by tho most
wealthy and influential citizen? of St. Louis, for
tho purpose of changing the current of Life Insur?
ance and Life Insurance capital from the East to
the West and South, and as Its plan ia liberal and
just to every section, State and district, thc wealthy
men of the West and Sou-h generally are insuring
their lives in it, to the exclusion of other companies.
This is shown b f the fact that tho policies issued
during the months of December and January are of
an ave ran ge amount of $7,368 42, drawing an aver?
age annual premium of $418 20.
Tho fargeet avengo attained by any other compa?
